Peace to all in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
HAPPY EASTER. Greetings in Christ and renew your spirit in Christ.
April is National Humor, Cancer Control, and Stress Awareness Month.
Spring is here and the robins are back.
Lev. 20;26 states, "To me therefore, you shall be sacred, for I, the Lord am sacred."
This month let's consider the word 'wholeness'.
Wholeness OE (hal) means healthy, and is the quality, or state of being whole, sum total of all parts; complete; entire; comprising the full quantity, intact; pertaining to all aspects of human nature especially. physical, intellectual and spiritual development.(Dictionary.com).
The whole person means the person and their family system including those who are not immediate family members (Parish Nurse Standards of the Catholic Charities of Lacrosse Diocese,1999)
The care of the whole person by the parish nurse ministry is integrated emotionally, physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually.
How do Parish Nurses use this human care process? This care comprises prayer, presence, valued interactions, respect, providing spiritual support, advocacy, education of prevention practices, safe environment and health promotion.
Let's pray for wholeness of harmony, balance, wellness on our way to a perfect life.
John 10:10, states, "I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly."
